Tom Cruise’s daughter Bella doesn't want father’s life of luxury, refuses to stay in $455K-a-month penthouse

Tom Cruise’s daughter Bella has reportedly refused to live a luxurious life like her father. The actor is currently in London residing at a palatial penthouse in the historic Corinthia Residences, the previous owner of that was the Queen, as he shoots for his high-profile movie projects. A new report from Woman's Day stated that Cruise is now trying to persuade his 27-year-old daughter to stay with him, but the opulent $455,000-a-month property may not be enough to attract her.
The property where Cruise is living includes four bedrooms, an indoor pool, and a jaw-dropping view, but Bella - a T-shirt designer - is reportedly happier living in a three-bedroom home in Croydon, south London, with IT consultant husband Max Parker and a pet reptile. Sources have said that Bella prefers a low-profile life, unlike her childhood days that were all about luxury. Her actor father’s palatial home has a mini Harrods-inspired department store and a spa over the span of four floors. “Tom has a dedicated team of staff to look after his every whim, where he can call for room service from the Corinthia's in-house restaurants such as Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge's Bar & Grill,” a source told Woman's Day.
Bella was reportedly adopted by the ‘Mission: Impossible’ star and his former wife Nicole Kidman in 1992. The ex-pair also adopted her biological brother, Connor Cruise, now 25, in 1995. It has been said that Bella is not going to inherit anything big from her rich adoptive father, who is worth $570 million. However, there is no bitterness between the two as the Church of Scientology 'Poster Girl' appeared in a promo, where she thanked the ‘Top Gun’ star.
She also expressed her gratitude to the Church of Scientology for helping find the missing piece in her life after pursuing extensive training to become an auditor. Bella in an email mentioned as reported by The Daily Mail, “It turned out it was exactly what I needed. I dragged out the testing and correction, just made it through the drilling and then finally began my auditing adventure, and wow, I wasn't prepared. This IS what I had been searching for. The missing piece.” She also thanked Cruise, whose full name is Thomas Cruise Mapother IV, her aunt Cass Mapother and several church members for their help while she went through her training. “Thank you to my Dad for everything. To Cass. To Tash. I would have drowned in my own problems if you hadn't been there to sup me or get me through the preliminaries,” she added.
Unlike her father, Bella did not spend much time with her adoptive mother as she divorced Cruise in 2001. Kidman also did not go to Bella’s wedding. However, it seems now they are becoming close to each other as Bella has begun to like Kidman's Instagram posts. “Bella popping up on Nicole's Instagram all of a sudden has got lots of people talking. It's huge, given everything that's happened between them,” an insider told New Idea magazine. The 53-year-old actress has not said anything about her relationship with her adoptive kids. Kidman earlier said to Who magazine: “I'm very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it's what my purpose is.”
